Technical and Administrative Infrastructure (PGI/JCNS-TA)

The staff of Technical and Administrative Infrastructure support the researchers at the Peter Grünberg Institute (PGI) and the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) in their work - quickly and efficiently. True to our motto “Good infrastructure for good science”, we seek to optimize processes according to the requirements of our customers, even beyond the boundaries of institutes.
